We’d like to invite community groups and active citizens in Inverleith to our fourth free NENgage training session next week, Building an Online Community. It’s a chance to learn how you can use social media to help promote your community projects, campaigns and causes.
Many people forget that in order to get the most out of social media, you have to be…well, sociable!
The most successful blogs, websites and social media users are the ones who interact, engage and respond to users, and who build up a loyal “digital community” around them. It’s an approach that can take a bit more work to start with, but which ultimately leads to a dynamic site where useful stories and ideas flow to you.
For this session, we have invited successful bloggers to speak about how they have managed to foster an online community; Phyllis Stephen, who set up and runs The Edinburgh Reporter website, and Alan McIntosh of The Spurtle. Tom Allan will also be talking about setting up the Edinburgh Innertube Map website, and Emily Dodd will be speaking about her experience as a blogger and volunteer for Greener Leith.
The session is aimed at community groups and active citizens in Inverleith, is being held at Stockbridge Library, from 5:45pm to 7:30pm on Thursday the 27th of September - with drinks in the Antiquary Bar afterwards. Please come along!
It’s free to come, but we recommend that you book a ticket on Eventbrite in advance.
